Love, Death, and Coming of Age: Watch the Trailer For Hulu's Looking For Alaska

John Green's bestselling YA novel Looking For Alaska has gotten the onscreen adaptation treatment courtesy of Hulu, which has turned the heartfelt coming-of-age story into an eight-episode limited series. The first trailer introduces us to Miles "Pudge" Halter (Charlie Plummer) and his obsession with last words ("I go to seek a great perhaps"), as he enrolls in a rural boarding school.

While there, he ends up making new, meaningful friendships with a group of guys, as well as falling in love with the titular Alaska (Sierra Burgess Is a Loser star Kristine Froseth). Unfortunately, Miles also encounters profound tragedy, forcing him and his friends to grow up in ways they weren't expecting to. Watch the trailer for the show — which also stars Denny Love, Jay Lee, and Timothy Simons — before it begins streaming on Oct. 18!
